2017 Hemp Planting Season is Upon Us!

2017 Hemp Planting Season is Upon Us!

As farmers across the state of Colorado, and the rest of the nation are prepping their fields for this year’s industrial hemp planting, we would like to take the time to thank all of our customers that have purchased or placed a deposit on our high CBD clones.

It is amazing to see how this industry has grown in the past two years. Last year we provided 100k clones to farmers. This year we anticipate that number to increase more than 4-fold.

Many farmers are deciding on whether they would like to purchase hemp seed for fiber and grain production, or purchase cultivars for CBD hemp production. If you are interested in pursuing industrial hemp CBD production, there are two inputs that you could opt for: seed or feminized clone.

2016 Clone Sales – A Year In Review

2016 Clone Sales – A Year In Review

2016 was a whirlwind of year for Greenhouse Growing System in terms of growth and the development of our clone program. Through rigorous trial and error we were able to determine the best methods of cutting, sticking, and developing a root system for our clones in Ellepot trays. This past season we produced 100,000 rooted clones for our customers and our own 7 acre field. With this knowledge we are moving into a much larger facility for 2017 and plan to produce 400,000 clones for our customers throughout the country.

Another Hemp First for Colorado.

Another Hemp First for Colorado.

Colorado notched another nationwide first Wednesday involving cannabis when state agriculture officials showed off the first certified domestic hemp seeds.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture has been working for years to produce hemp seeds that consistently produce plants low enough in the chemical THC to qualify as hemp and not its intoxicating cousin, marijuana.

The Colordado Hemp Boom

The Colordado Hemp Boom

In Colorado it is all about cannabis, but not just recreational and medical marijuana.  Industrial hemp registration numbers are increasing daily, as thousands of acres Colorado farm land are reserved for hemp.  Not only fields are filling with hemp but greenhouses as well as the Great Colorado Hemp Boom explodes across the state. All of these Colorado Hemp farmers are dependent on strong high cannabinoid industrial hemp plants that produce cannabinoids other than THC.  Testing services are also important to insure that crops remain legal.  The following article BY CHRIS WOODKA of The Pueblo Chieftain explains more about the increase in industrial hemp applications and the real danger of industrial hemp crops rising above legal levels of THC.

Hundreds roamed around the Boulder County Fairgrounds Saturday for the opening of a two-day hemp festival — an event that is part conference, part education and part of the continued victory celebration for the legalization of marijuana in Colorado several years ago.
Many strolled by varying vendor stands, brochures in hand as they checked out CBD-laced products, colorful glass pipes, frisbees, tie-dyed clothing, LED lights and hemp apparel, from purses to hats.
Hempfest, celebrating its second annual Colorado Industrial Hemp Awards and Festival, focuses on education for farmers, Native Americans, hemp entrepreneurs and the public.
The event provides an outlet for sellers and buyers of viable low-THC industrial hemp seed, hemp raw materials and products made out of hemp, according to the event's website.
Though the festival remains a celebration for some, Hempfest is considered an important political event for many attendees...

A Letter from Zev Paiss Executive Director of the National Hemp Association

Mike has spent the last week in DC lobbying for House Bill 'H.R. 525', the 'Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015'.  We have been able to get EVERY Colorado Representative on the bill with the exception of Lamborn.  I was wondering if you'd make a call to his district office and encourage them to sign on?
 
If we can get him on we would be the first of the 50 states to have every representative on board.  His district office number is: (719) 520-0055
 
Thanks!
Zev
